Its James – I read this post, thinking couldn't have summed up Argos paint job better – only to realise I think its me your quoting as having summed up Argos paint job in this way!!!!
Think I've been told they usually do Road bikes – so not subject to same abuse….hence paint not fairing well on the forks I had done.
But they did look stunning on day I picked them up, better than Rock Shox's own finish IMO.
Hope someone else can offer subjective opinion for you…..
heard me & Mr-many bikes – have acquired another each!!! going all slopestyle in Surrey Hills ..! or trying too.ransosSubscriber
I wouldn't use them for an MTB again – the finish is 1st class but it scratches too easily. They painted my old Breezer, which I had to cover in helicopter tape to protect it. For an everyday type bike then I second the recommendation for a powdercoater, I had a bike done a few years ago and the finish was tough as old boots.Posted 8 years agoJujuuk68Member
Depending on the finish you want, there might be better/cheaper.
for example, a lot of the old school bmx community use a couple of guys who do top class work everytime, as they do it almost at a loss, for fun.
Guys trust their valuable old school bikes, which will be older more worn, and possibly more susceptible to damage to these guys.
Powdercoating seems preferable, for a hard wearing, long lasting coat, and I can find a thread on radbmx.com which has loads of photos.
and http://www.radbmx.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=56789.0 (you might need to join up toaccess it) to see loads of refinished bikes including candycoats ect.
Theres a couple of others I can find if your interested.Posted 8 years ago
